The greatest question on the farm to-day is the one of fertility. It Is a broad as the farm itself and is tin basis of profitable farming. The question never holves itself, but must le done by the Individual farmer. The fact is apparent that it takes a pretty strong effort to even maintain the fertility of a farm, let alone in creasing it, yet it canle done. A farm may lie handled In such a way that it will become richer and richer every year, but the man must have a correct understanding of the bais principles of the question. One f the main sources of fertility is through the medium of stable manure yet this product is given but little at tention on the average farm. One half would be a conservative estimate of the average loss sustained liefore it reaches the soil when needed to get the most benefit out of manure it should be spread on the land as soon as possible after it is made. Fvery moment it lays in a pile it is losing its most valuable parts, the practice of drawing and spreading in the fields as fast as made is the Improved fas hion with our strictly up-to-date far mers. The practice of growing large ly of potatoes, beans and kindred crops tender to reduce the fertility of the farm because there is so compar atively little to be returned to the soil from them. In fact there is a chance for much profitable thought, study and experiments along these lines. A Colorado man is trying to propi gate a melon without seeds, well let him pro), as for us, we prefer them with seeds. A seedless melon would lie robbed of half the enjoyment in eating them. Shooting' the seeds out between bites with the juice dropping of the chin makes the melon taste better. O. A. NUMMl'.K. Watermelon 11 Fruit. Some men have never been willing to class the luscious ''watermilion" as a vegetable, and on this point the United States government has lie en forced to come to the darkey's point of view. The decision has Wen made by the general board of appraisers on a case arising at Xogales upon the right to import melons as vegetables. The lioard decided thrt "the melon is known technically, popularly and commercially, as a fruit ami therefore dutiable." The same view is taken, by the department of agriculture, and we may now rest assured that the status of the watermelon, muskmelon, cantaloupe and their whole kindred has been raised a few points, officially and permanentby. Indio may now claim to be one of the most promising fruit sections of the state without a tree in sight. National Fruit (3 rower. WONDERFUL ACCOMPLISHMENT. Around the World In One Day. A tareat Aelileveinent In .News atlierlnu:. In the matter of newspapers, the tirst impulso is, of course, to provide youreelf with the local journal, which presents Id detail the important hap penings In your immediate vicinity, the doings of your friends and neigh bors aud keeps watch for you over y oar city or county government. Hut in these days of rapid transt and electri cal communication, the community is no longer a unit in itself. Even the farmer, with his free rural delivery, is beginning to feel himself a part of the great whole, and to recognize the ne cessity for keeping in touch with the world and its doings. This can bo ef fectively realized only by taking a metropolitan daily, and, fortunately, the developments of modern journalism have made it possible to do this at so slight an expense that it will hardly be notieed.

AVIint We Mont ltenieinber. Memory Is for the most part "a trivial fond record" of the affairs of everyday life, and our intense desire not to lose the remembrance of these unimportant everyday matters is one of the greatest testimonies to the predominance of happiness over unhapplness in the world. Io we not feel sorry from our hearts for any one who has lost such an Infinitely precious possession with out even wondering whether or no there was anything in their past lives worth recollecting? After all, how few are tho hours which any of us would blot out of our lives! Those perhaps dining which we have witnessed or suffered acute physical or mental pain, the moment when we engendered the worm of remorse which dieth not or those few minutes of humiliation which, whether we trace them to fault or fate, remain In our minds to "vex us like a thing that Is raw." Hut how small Is the part we would have taken away compared to the part we would retain! Loudon Spectator. An F.xeentlon In China. The poor wretches were made to dig a large square pit, and one by one they were made kneel at the edge with their hands tied behind their backs. A Japanese oflleer stepped forward and with the ordinary service sword drew it back and forward over the poor wretch's neck, and then with a swift blow it descended, cutting off the head. The next one was as successful, and then came a terrible sjiectacle. The Jap anese ollicer, after wiping his sword, drew the back to and fro over the poor wretch's neck three or four times before he struck the fatal blow. Down came the blade on the apex of the skull, cutting about two Inches Into the neck.' The poor wretch fell Into the pit, the Japanese oflleer climbing down and sawing away at the neck until the head was severed. The heads were immedi ately carried over to the main road and strung up on poles as an object lesson to the large number of Chinese who were congregated around with blanch ed faces.

This Is u true ftory about one of the mayors t,f Kansas City. lie was mayor when the incident occurred, not so very many years ago. Two newspaper men, both very good friends of the mayor, were about toTleave town, and they asked Mr. .Vn'or i; help them cele brate their d-; :rn r It was a I t .'.:;. '..1 summer, and aft er an hour or two of convivial Indul gence the mayor f Kansas City was very much under the Influence of liq uor. The newspaper men were feeling Jovial, but they were tlll able to walk around. It finally became necessary to do something for the mayor. Seeing a fruit wagon pass, one of the newspaper men ran out and hailed the driver. When he drew up to the curb, he was nsked whether or not he wanted to make He replied that he tims.t cer tainly did. It was then explained to him that a drunken man would be stretched out in his wagon, lace toward the sky. and that he must drive through all the busi ness streets of the town und then take the man home. Not knowing w ho Ids passenger was to be, the driver consented, and the Joke was carried out to the letter. Through the streets of Kansas City the mayor of the town, stretched out on an open wagon asleep, was driven, and there was a placard that announced the cause of the strange plight fastened on the back of the wagon. The mayor was not re-elected. Chicago Chronicle. The lieiceiul of the Snowdrop. An old legend gives the following ah the origin of the snowdrop: After Ad- lam and Kve had been driven from the garden of I'den Hve was disconsolate. One day as she sat silently grieving an angel appeared and sought means to comfort her. She longed for the Mow ers, but the fast descending snow was wrapping the barren earth In a robe of white. As the angel stood and spoke words of hope to the weeping, repentant wom an he caught a snowflake. breathed gently upon It and said: "Take form, pure snowflake, bud and blossom and be a comfort to humanity, now and forever." In a twinkling the snowflake changed Into a beautiful flower, as white and pure as the snow itself, and when Hve beheld the newborn blossom gladness and hope came to her heart, and she smiled through her tears. Having fulfilled his mission of love, the angel departed, but where he had stood tliere immediately sprung up a circle of perfect snowdrops. An .1'ollnn Harp. To make an seolian harp construct a box of very thin pine, cedar or other wood, five or six Inches deep, seven or eight Inches wide, with a hngth equal to that of the window In which It Is to be placed. Across the top, near each end, glue a strip of wood half an Inch high and a quarter of an inch thick for bridges. Into the ends of the box insert wooden pins, like those of a vlo liu, to wind the strings around, two pins in each end. Make a sound hole In the middle of the top and string the box with small catgut or first fiddle strings. Fastening one end of each string to a metallic pin In one end of the box and carrying It over the bridges, wind It around the turning plu in the opposite end of the box. Tune the strings In unison and place the box in the wiudow. It Is better to have four strings, but a harp with a single string produces au exceedingly sweet melody. Orlffla of the Word "Canada." On April 20, 1G31, Jacques Cartler sailed from St. Malo, Urittany, with two ships and 01 men, for Labrador, fekirted Newfoundland, named Chaleur bay, crossed the eastern end of Antl costl and then headed for France again. The next year Cartler returned with three ships, thought he saw In the St. Lawrence the wished for pas sage to India and was only undeceived by the freshness of the water on reach lng the mouth of the Saguenay. Then was revealed the majestic size of the continent, for, with the exception of the Amazon and the Orinoco, no Amcr lean river gives one such a sense of power and grandeur. As the Frenchmen Inquired the names of the Indian villages along the banks they were answered "Canada," a Mohawk word meaning village, but which was applied by the Frenchmen to the country. . .
